This is probably the least visited center in the park since it has little to see inside and the gift shop is minimal. The bathrooms were out of order when we were there also. The employees were super nice and location is near several trails....More

Not a big gift shop, but great informative Rangers staff this place. Nice static wildlife displays offer a good perspective into the animals who live in the park. Nice hike around the area and quick access to the campground.

The main reason for stopping at a ranger station is to get trail onformation. Sure there a a couple of displays and tiny gift shop but don't stop here for that. The young ranger who was there 2 days in a row had poor people...More
